Republican presidential candidate John McCain has defended a planned campaign rally at the site where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963.
The rally to be entitled "Country First - Who is the real Barack Obama?" will take place on the infamous "Grassy Knoll" in Dallas' Dealy Plaza, from where many believe that the fatal shot which killed President Kennedy was fired back in 1963. Both John McCain and his running mate Governor Sarah Palin are set to attend.
A McCain spokesman defended the decision saying "You guys are all paranoid. There isn't any code here at all. It is just a rally and this location was selected because of space considerations rather than any other reason the 'mainstream media' may wish to conjure up." McCain, who trails in polls has recently been accused of firing up negative attacks on his opponent Barack Obama in an attempt to have voters question the Democratic candidate's credentials.
